What’s this about “Missionaries of Mercy”...? Pardoning sins formerly reserved to the Pope?
Are we selling indulgences again?
No, we're apparently entering Vatican II Electric Boogaloo.
We all have someone who has hurt us. We can forgive them. What’s wrong with that?
I read somewhere else that these are priests who will be allowed to absolve these confessed sins.
There are certain sings that are so severe that they would require the Bishop of the Diocese to approve absolution. These were called, “reserved sins” In some of the cases Pope Francis mentioned, the ability of the priest to exercise his vocation may be compromised and require a higher authority. This new apostolate would be able to exercise that authority.
